"Paint Me By Numbers" Do unto others just what I deserve Carpet is littered with little dead birds Paint me by numbers or sever my nerves Count down my fate in the stories I’ve heard Ten blenders holding ten goldfish Nine girls with eight Barbies Seven brothers turned into ravens The legs pressed together must form three diamonds Five women cured under the scalpel Four fish hacked on the table The first operation’s a failure So back to the doctor two years later Who says a girl can’t get by on her looks Vanitas pictures of bones and of books What have you done with the spoils of the hunt A shoebox in the back of a closet A Tiffany box wrapped up by an angel A thump like a heart from under the floorboards This whole installation is swimming in corpses Ten blenders holding ten goldfish Nine girls with eight Barbies Seven brothers turned into ravens The legs pressed together must form three diamonds Five women cured under the scalpel Four fish hacked on the table The first operation’s a failure So back to the doctor two years later Can’t you remember the time we first met Maybe you haven’t encountered me yet Who is the falconer whose eye beholds Death in the paintbrush you’ve captured my soul

Trying to remove the animal from the animal. The mess from the living, The blood from the woman, There’s truth you’re forgetting. How do you try and not get wet when you’re the river, No matter how many times you step. You are the river. Do you love me? Life in this dimension is a time-based art, Plot is a convention of the patriarch. Go ahead and climax 'till you come apart. No denouement - it’s your river. Do you love me? Can’t keep still the wild clit hightailing it to her fortune, her adventure. You’ll make it home to bridge the distance between that vagina that you measured. Between observer and observed between art and the witness between you and Meredith between Agnes and the foreskin. That’s one hell of a communion. Do you Love me/ Not a Still Life at all. You might want an envelope for the letter. Don’t forget you are the door. You are the key.

A clitoris was mounted mounted on a pin the pin put in a jar that jar there by the floor The floor is rusty orange covered with dead canary birds I'm sipping a fresh blended gold fish drink Filling yellow legal pads with words I wished I were a tapeworm Making love would be so fine 22000 sex organs playing all at the same time Instead I'm just hearing a tattoo thrusting in my brain The creaking joints of an absent lover's bed breathing, pounding, gasping a hellish refrain Sauvez le clitoris Kijk hoe klein de kalkoen daaronder in deze D'Hondecoeter Hoe wild de waterval van veren van die Pauw

Meredith spelled “lissen!” with no ’t’ Why should we listen to she? But everybody listens to Meredith Meredith says we met yesterday Not at the Camp Peaseblossom play And everybody listens to Meredith Meredith’s got the perfect shape Meredith’s gold is scissors and tape Meredith’s got me peeling her grape And there’s no escape Still Life With Meredith Meredith takes what Meredith wants Meredith teases, Meredith taunts And everybody wants to be Meredith Meredith can be such a flirt It’s so easy when nothing hurts And everybody wants to be Meredith Meredith’s got the perfect shape Meredith’s gold is scissors and tape Meredith’s got me peeling her grape And there’s no escape Still Life With Meredith And when I change the focus of this song Meredith fidgets and Meredith yawns She doesn’t get my lack of fashion She doesn’t heat up to my passion The itch that never satisfies I want her jeans, I want her thighs Like that part of Bonaparte That moved three times and touched my heart She’s gone now, but she’ll be back Gotta sweep her birds and hide her dead cat… Meredith’s got the perfect shape Meredith’s gold is scissors and tape Meredith’s got me peeling her grape And there’s no escape Still Life With Meredith

We started in January 2009 playing songs written in response to Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. We haven't stopped since. We've written & performed songs inspired by everything from "On The Origin of Species" to Dr. Seuss to Raymond Carver. There are BBCs popping up nationwide now. Bushwick Book Club Seattle started in 2010 & is run by Geoff Larson. Our nerdy dare-devilry knows no bounds. ... more
